1982 Yamaha Maxim 650
For a 27 year old bike, it still will run with the big boys and looks good doing it!
Nothing really has gone wrong with it, though the carburetors could use a going over (rough idling); I just change the oil, tires, fluids & go.
It could use a repaint as the paint is looking shabby.
I always thought the 80's style bikes had a "Whole Lot Of Soul" & the "Yamaha Maxims" says it all.
It's so agile & predictable, it's just too much fun for a bike of this vintage.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
